Julia K. Persson (b. 1992, SE) holds an MFA from Oslo National Academy of the Arts and a BA from Lund School of Architecture. Her work revolves around large-scale sculptures and installations, mainly made in clay, ceramics and textiles. Through abstract and figurative forms, she explores constructions; in our built environments, but also in our ideas and thoughts. It is often when something goes wrong, breaks or ends that her interest grows and her work begins. By working with clay in its different stages, from wet to fired, Persson explores what the different materialities can hold and express.
Persson has exhibited at Rackstadmuseet and Höganäs Konsthall, and has taken part in several group exhibitions at, amongst others, ROM for kunst og arkitektur, with PYTON at Kunstnerforbundet and London Craft Week.
